The voices in this dramatization are perfect. Timothy West is a fantastic Rumpole. Prunella Scales is perfect as Hilda Rumpole - all the voices are top notch. It's a great way to listen to Rumpole. I didn't want it to end!
This is a minor novel by Jane Austen. It's short in length but has the same wit as her other books. I found it delightful to listen to. The narrator, Juliet Stevenson, was perfect in her rendition of the character's voices, including the male voices.
I have read this book, so I could follow an abridged version. I think it would be confusing if I'd never read the book. Arte Johnson's narration was perfect! He was so funny. I wish he had narrated an unabridged version. But I don't regret using a credit for this. I really enjoyed it.
I love historical mysteries and was ready to enjoy this. The narrator is fantastic, he makes you forget there is only one person narrating. That's why I give this two stars. The writing is literate. The problem is the plot! It's boring, meandering, pointless, and I was wishing it would end already. I have no idea why the boy Edgar Allan Poe is a character: he has zero relevance to the plot. It was like a gimmick to get people to read the book. I think The Italian Secretary by Caleb Carr is a much better listen.
I didn't notice any problem with Davidson's voice in listening to this. I enjoyed it as much as the other books he's narrated.
This is a delightful collection of Rumpole stories. Tony Britton is a perfect narrator for this. He has a gently sardonic attitude and a rich voice. If you like Rumpole, this is a must-listen.
